The sleek and innovative design of the Alvaro Pergola gives you the best of both worlds providing a quick and simple control of the weather all year round, the louvered roof shutters create a fully weatherproof space come rain or shine by a turn of the handle. Any rain water is seamlessly drained off and down specially engineered channels on the inside of the legs and then out the bottom into the ground it’s anchored to, then draining away with the natural fall of the existing surface.
The Alvaro pergola is available as a 3.6x3m and 3.6x4m base model with available extension kits at 3m and 4m with sleek single legs at the connection points. It is infinitely extendable lengthways in metres from 3.6x3m (excluding 3.6x5m) making it perfect for garden projects needing bespoke, easily adaptable shade and shelter.

The robust aluminium powder coated frame construction ensures longevity through its rust-free, weatherproof and UV protected properties, allowing you to enjoy your outdoor space for years to come.
The Alvaro stands 20cm taller than the Maranza Deluxe Pergola and so makes it a perfect overhang above bifold doors. The construction of a terrace roof is no longer a complicated and long-term building project, this is a smart solution with a long lifespan.
With optional deluxe screens that can be fixed to the Pergola to create an enclosed space protecting you from the sun, wind and rain.
The Alvaro is resistant to wind up to a wind force of 120 km/h and boasts a 5 year warranty.
Full height of the Alvaro is 250.8cm at the top of the roof beam increasing to 257.5cm when the louvres are open. And 236cm at the underside of the roof beam across all sizes.
The post width is 11cm x 11cm and the footplate is 17cm x 17cm (These can be removed if needed).
*Outside length is the measurement from footplate to footplate, these can be removed if needed. Please refer to the drawing for further dimensions, found in the ‘Assembly Instructions’ below.
All of our Pergolas come with full assembly instructions and can be easily self fitted with basic DIY knowledge, as well as ideally two more people to help, plus an array of tools.
Estimated build time varies for each size model and ranges from 1-5 hours.
We always recommend anchoring the Pergola to the ground and ensuring you have something substantial enough to anchor into before the build begins. Please be aware that your warranty will not cover you for damage caused to a Pergola that has not been adequately secured to the ground.
If you would rather not assemble your Pergola yourself, then please tick the box above to add the install to your order. Please click here for more information regarding the installation and the pre-installation guide agreement.
A natural fall of ideally 15mm is required to allow the water to drain away as designed and for the screens to be fitted correctly, which by building regulations, your patio likely already has. Our install team can use packers under specific legs to ensure the complete gazebo works correctly should the fall of the patio level be different to the above, and by using our installation service you are agreeing to our team using packers under the footplates in such instances.
You can find assembly instructions for the 3.6 x 3 model here.
You can find assembly instructions for the 3.6 x 4m model here.
Before you complete groundworks or book a pergola installation, please see our foundational guidance below to support you in discussions with your landscaper or builder.
The pergola must be fitted on to a solid surface and beneath the finished surface must be something for the pergola to be secured safely such as a concrete pad.
This would need to be completed before our installers arrive as they do not offer any groundworks, a local tradesperson would be able to assist you.
We can provide a floorplan indicating where the floor plates of the pergola will sit based on your chosen size and orientation, the floorpan can also be viewed on the relevant product page on our website.
We advise for concrete pads of approx 40x40x40cm beneath any tiles, if you have decking then we advise the same or alternatively extra structural joists below the decking.
You should then finish your surface completely with the tiles or decking on top, so that when our installers arrive they can drill through the tile/deck and into something extra secure below.
It is a good idea to choose your pergola size before doing any groundworks however if you have already laid the patio/deck then we do advise for you to check what is beneath the surface. Is it secure enough? Type1 or sand would not be suitable. Composite decking without something solid below would not be secure enough, unless you already have structural beams underneath where the footplates will sit. If this is the case, installing would successful as long as all footplates are sitting on structural beams wide enough for the footplate to be bolted into fully.
Should you have any questions before completing groundworks or booking a pergola installation please speak to our team on 01277 321888.
